"People mature with age and experience. I hope I more resemble a fine wine than bad vinegar."

I have loved cucumbers in vinegar since I was a kid. My mother made them very simply as peeled and sliced cucumbers (not seeded) with oil, white vinegar and a bit of salt and pepper. The mint was sprinkled on sometimes since it grew wild in our side yard. A taste of the South in the summer.
This variation is a little more elegant and I like to use rice vinegar because it's not as acidic and lets the sweetness of the cucumber and mint come through better.
